Synopsis

In the tenth book of he Wheel of Time from the New York Times #1 bestselling author Robert Jordan, the world and the characters stand at a crossroads, and the world approaches twilight, when the power of the Shadow grows stronger.

Fleeing from Ebou Dar with the kidnapped Daughter of the Nine Moons, whom he is fated to marry, Mat Cauthon learns that he can neither keep her nor let her go, not in safety for either of them, for both the Shadow and the might of the Seanchan Empire are in deadly pursuit.

Perrin Aybara seeks to free his wife, Faile, a captive of the Shaido, but his only hope may be an alliance with the enemy. Can he remain true to his friend Rand and to himself? For his love of Faile, Perrin is willing to sell his soul.

At Tar Valon, Egwene al'Vere, the young Amyrlin of the rebel Aes Sedai, lays siege to the heart of Aes Sedai power, but she must win quickly, with as little bloodshed as possible, for unless the Aes Sedai are reunited, only the male Asha'man will remain to defend the world against the Dark One, and nothing can hold the Asha'man themselves back from total power except the Aes Sedai and a unified White Tower.

In Andor, Elayne Trakland fights for the Lion Throne that is hers by right, but enemies and Darkfriends surround her, plotting her destruction. If she fails, Andor may fall to the Shadow, and the Dragon Reborn with it.

Rand al'Thor, the Dragon Reborn himself, has cleansed the Dark One's taint from the male half of the True Source, and everything has changed. Yet nothing has, for only men who can channel believe that saidin is clean again, and a man who can channel is still hated and feared-even one prophesied to save the world. Now, Rand must gamble again, with himself at stake, and he cannot be sure which of his allies are really enemies.

  • Earth Shattering Tedium
    From Amazon

    This book was so boring I was forced to eat the fingers off my left hand in order to stay awake. As a committed masochist, that's OK and you will need to be one too if you start out on the same 'journey'. In fact, if you did enjoy this book you probably need to be committed.

  • When will it end?
    From Amazon

    I am admittedly a fantasy-aholic and will even confess to having read most of Patricia McKillip's books more than once...Riddlemaster 4 times at last count. The chance to while away a long, cold winter with a truly long fantasy saga excited me to the point of purchasing the first eleven Wheel of Time books. By volume 6, I truly found myself hoping that a bomb would fall on and obliterate every lead character. Not that we should come to love each fantasy lead character, in fact, some I love to hate, but I remain absolutely indifferent to Jordan's characters, as I've grown indifferent to the whole Wheel of Time thrust.

  • The Wheel hits a nail and deflates completely
    From Amazon

    Well, my fellow WoT fans, this is the book we all feared would come--a book where Jordan stooped to filling pages with virtually meaningless content, knowing that we would still read it. It is hard to believe how inferior this book is to the others in the series. I am still amazed that my eyes passed over so many words, yet so little happened to advance the story. There are only a few things of remote importance that happen in this book. I recommend that you spare yourself the agony and read an online plot summary instead. But if your curiosity demands that you read it, just be warned--this book is a chore to finish and there is little reward awaiting those who invest the time.

  • The real reason you've read W.O.T.
    From Amazon

    Oh, shut up you negative reviewers. How many of us have sworn to never touch this series again, only to pick up the next book and wade in. No one seems to understand; it is obvious this series is actually an experiment in written subconscious compulsion. The team behind this series works very hard to annoy us to the point of red rage, while at the same time manipulating us to keep buying or at least reading the series. The results of this expirement will allow the government to control the minds of the general population from here on out. I mean, if they can make us keep reading this, they can surely make us do anything else without even trying hard. That said, I've got some reading to do...must..read...

  • Probably the Worst in the Series
    From Amazon

    The only reason anyone would want to read this book is because it is part of the Wheel of Time series. Unless you are already hooked on this series (and the rest of it is really good, so check it out!), don't bother getting this book.

    The "good news" is that this book is so bad, it's really, really cheap to get.
